it is a evga ftw3? which pl do you have on this card?
The FTW3 is a 338W card, but that's not the reason, usually cards wont use max voltage even with the slider maxed out if you just use + Mhz OC mode, that how Boost works.
In order to maximize OC since series 10, you need to use Curve mode as the tutorial explains. If I just use + Mhz mode it doesn't go past 1050mV and don't reach the same OC.
Serie 20 max vcore is 1093mV, but at 1093mV perfCap will stay locked on "voltage", which I personally don't like as I have a feeling it affects performance, so I use one step down, which is 1087mV.
I did the same thing on a 2080 Ventus OC, so nothing to do with the card.
Of course is possible that a simpler card will yell Power on perfCap at 1087mV depending on the application, the Ventus OC peaked it's TDP (250W) on a few games at max vcore.
